Evening meditation time

Evening meditation time. I’m still in shock that another “Lisa Shea” author just released her Cinderella book weeks before my own. The exact same author name. The exact same fairy tale princess. The exact same 30 day period. I have over 300 books out, so I’m not hard to find to see I’ve been working on this area. I’ve been discussing my book for probably over a year.

I have now published mine, even though I wasn’t quite ready to, and will publish book 2 (Snow White) shortly.

A key reason this upsets me is that I worked on my Cinderella series for all this time so it would *counteract* the fairy tale message girls are given. And now there’s a book out which looks to all my readers as if I *did* write a fairy tale version. There’s no way for a reader to look at that book and know it is NOT me. And on Amazon if you click on the “Lisa Shea” name it shows my other books.

Just very upsetting. Time for deep breathing and inward focus. #namaste

Evening meditation time

Evening meditation time. Today I focused on finalizing the re-editing & reloading of my entire SciFi series. The books even got updated covers. It’s been a multi-day effort but definitely worth it, to have my best possible voice out there. I grow every year with my writing and I like to routinely take a pass at my older books to polish them up. They represent me to the world just as much as my current ones do. Take steps to improve daily! #namaste

Today I’m grateful

Today I’m grateful I’ve always been an equal earner & partner in my relationships. Apparently younger men disagree – studies find the current generation of men prefers in higher numbers for women to stay home and have less say. Very bizarre that we’re moving backwards.

Why do you think that’s the case? And what are you grateful for?
